A Wonderful Trip

Finally I have something to post about! We just completed our first trip leader training and it went swimmingly. We had a great mix of people of all ages and backgrounds. Everyone learned how fun and relatively easy looking for rare plants can be. Hopefully they will go on their own trips or lead trips in the future.

Here is one of our finds-Erigeron miser (Starved daisy), just a little thing.
In the sunflower family, but it has no ray petals.
And it's habitat-granite outcrops
Getting a dendrochronology lesson! (Tree ring dating that is.)
Another beautiful location, love those high Sierran Lakes.
The rare Ivesia sericoleuca, Plumas mousetail.
